MUC - Miami On LH A340?

Mon Feb 16, 2004 9:27 pm

I'm going from Brussels to Miami mid-March. There is a connection via MUC on LH which is convenient (should be star alliance flights). LH's website gives the info that the airplane on this flight is an A340-300. However, e-booking info suggests that there is no first class which is strange for an A340-300.

Does anybody know which aircraft type is used between MUC and MIA, a B767 or a A330?

By the way, will LH drop its first class service completely when they refurbish their aircrafts with the new business class, since there is no F on the new A340-600.

LH will not drop First Class on all its flights. some aircraft (10 A346s as well as a number of A343s) will be equipped with Biz and Eco only.

i believe the 763 on MUC-MIA will be substituted soon. if that is the case prior to mid-march you´ll be on an A343. there will certainly be no A332 on this route.

If only pure sweetness was offered, why's this bitter taste left in my mouth.

At the moment LH uses its normal 340-300 on this routes with First. But there are the 2 leased former SN 343 and one LH 343 without first class seats, so maybe they blocked the first seats because one of these aircrafts will operates this route.

The 2 via Condor leased Lauda Air 767-300 are no longer operating flights for LH.

This switch must be recent. I used the MIA two weeks ago and it was D-ABUV 763. Not bad service in business at all but the connecting product at MUC is awful. Will avoid it in future.
